Instrument Repair

Fixing a Broken Instrument!

Please have your child bring your broken instrument to Mr. Kozian first!

Kids who are using the in-school support option should notify Mr. Kozian (email) about the problem and will arrange a drop off time (before or after school).

Kids who are learning virtually will need to do the following:
1.  Schedule a one on one Google Meet to show/demonstrate the problem/repair needed.

2.  Arrange a time to bring the instrument at school if needed. 

I will try to fix the instrument so your child can continue to play in class.  If I can not fix it, I recommend the options found below.  Have your child keep the mouthpiece (brass) & mouthpiece, reeds and ligature (woodwinds) as I will give them a school-owned instrument to use while their instrument is being repaired.
